ENTER THE INNER CIRCLE
The fall of the year 2002 saw the formation of a group of small but closely knit and dedicated Dark Angel players which in my opinion would transform the Dark Angel experience forever. Four friends who had never met each other but had known and worked together on the world wide web for the bnefit of the Dark Angels were brought together by Owen Rees with his idea of a real life Inner Circle. All four had been deeply involved in the Dark Angels from their background, to modelling, gaming and involvedment in their development. Soon after anothre two were inducted. Four of the six were web masters of their own Dark Angels web sites, two worked for Games Workshop and four were moderators at the B+C Dark Angels forum at which all six were regular posters.
The aim of the union was to form a core group to develop ideas, develop their rich history further and generally oversee and manage Dark Angel related events that we were hoping to conduct. It also coincided with the upcoming Eye of Terror campaign the following year. That event became a focus for the Inner Circle as we gradually developed the concept of a Dark Angel and Unforgiven campaign to be conducted within the EOT camnpaign. Suffice to say that the subsequent Gathering of Angels campaign was a great success from our point of view.
The Inner Circle was based on Owen Rees' "Outpost" Dark Angel web site until sadly owen had to close his site due to his extensive commitment leading Games Workshop's UK Web Design Team. Thus the Inner Circle has shifted its Headquarters to the Fortress of the Unforgiven and continues to serve the Unforgiven.
In this section you will find details of the Grandmasters of the Inner Circle, the activities and plans of the fellowship and past glories. The fact that the six have remained friends while being located in four countries and three continents ( USA -1, Canada - 1, UK - 1, Australia - 3) and having some members temporarily retire from service (you never retire permanently from the Unforgiven), some going off on detatched duty and more inducted to its ranks, is testament to the dedication of this group to stand by the Dark Angels and their Unforgiven chapters.
This same fanaticism and dedication s seen by their prominant contributions to the various sections of the Fortress of the Unforgiven ranging from displaying of armies, modelling articles, fiction, tactics and campaigns. Every contribution by a member of the Inner Circle will have the Inner Circle membership Seal depicted on their relevant pages as seen here on the right. The seal would also be placed by their names in the Halls of Honour to depict their honoured status.
